2.5 Million Murdered in Latin America Since 2000

By Staff Writers | teleSUR

Friday, Apr 27, 2018

Despite recent pronouncements by the Community of Latin American and Caribbean States (CELAC), the Caribbean Community (Caricom) and other regional organizations declaring Latin America a zone of peace, over 2.5 million people have been murdered in Latin America since the year 2000. The startling numbers were released Thursday by the Igarape Institute, a Brazil-based think-tank focused on security and development issues.

“The sheer dimensions of homicidal violence are breathtaking,” the report noted. Despite having just eight percent of the world’s population, Latin America is home to a whopping 33 percent of worldwide homicides.

SAmerica Murder

Twenty-five percent of all global homicides are concentrated in four countries – Brazil, Mexico, Colombia and Venezuela – all of which are preparing for presidential elections this year, according to The Guardian.

Robert Muggah, one of the authors of the study, said “The overall trend right now in Latin America is one of increasing homicides and deteriorating security. Latin America is a large area and there are lots of variations. But as a region – including Mexico down to Central America and South America – the rate of homicide is set to continue increasing up until 2030. The only other places we are seeing similar kinds of increases are in…some war zones.”

For example over the past two decades Mexico has been breaking every year’s record in the number of murders in the country and 2018 is on its way to become the deadliest in two decades.

Recent government figures show that nearly 7,667 people have been killed in Mexico so far in 2018, a 20 percent rise from 6,406 violent deaths reported in the first quarter last year, making this the most violent year in nearly two decades.

The report also highlights how young people living in Latin America are disproportionately affected by the violence. Almost 50 percent of all homicide victims are between the ages of 15 and 29.

Muggah pointed out that “In addition to having these exceedingly high, epidemic levels of homicide, the vast majority of these homicides are committed with firearms. Over 75% of homicides are gun-related,” while the global average is about 40%, Muggah pointed out.

Students around the US walked out of class in support of the Second Amendment on Wednesday

by AWR HAWKINS2 May 20183065

Stand-for-the-Second-Walkout--640x480

The walkout was part of Will Riley’s “Stand for the Second” event – a nationwide call to counter nonstop gun control campaigns with a walkout in support of the Second Amendment and our founding principles.

On May 1, Breitbart News reported that Riley, a senior at New Mexico’s Carlsbad High School, is not a gun owner but believes the ideals and freedoms dear to our Founding Fathers ought to be dear to us as well.

Students at over 300 schools responded to Riley’s battle cry, pledging to “Stand for the Second” in their respective locations.

Although the pro-Second Amendment walkout did not garner the same level of establishment media coverage as gun control walkouts, the Marion Star reportedapproximately 150 middle school students at Caledonia, Ohio’s River Valley Middle School walked out in support of gun  rights. NBC 52 reports that students in Portland, Oregon and Chicago, Illinois walked out as well.

CNN reported that students in New York walked out to “Stand for the Second” as well. They referenced Lane Cooper, a junior in NY’s Schoharie Central School District, who walked out and took part in discussions on how private gun ownership is meant to repel tyranny. Cooper said, “I do think there are way too many gun control laws, especially in New York where I am.”

CNN published a map that is very helpful in coming to grips with the size of the “Stand for the Second” event. The map shows every school where students were committed to walk out in support of gun rights:

COMMENT

Being a Brit, I once had a natural aversion to guns for the people, but I have been persuaded by three points.

Firstly, if you have to rely on the police turning up to protect you, in many circumstances you are dead especially if your assailant intends you harm. As an unarmed person you are relying on your attacker acting mercifully towards you or some luck that they accidentally fall over.

Secondly, criminals and terrorists are less likely to attack if they suspect there are armed people waiting for them. Most gun attacks have taken place in what are effectively gun-free zones. In other words gun free for the law abiding, but not for those who do not share the same ethics. How many lives would have been saved if terrorist attackers had faced return fire?

Thirdly, there is evidence that governments, even democratic ones, can turn totalitarian and oppressive. With everyone potentially armed, it maintains the understanding that governments should fear the people, not the other way round.

North Korea releases U.S. detainees, bows to another Trump demand

White House builds team for talks on nuclear program

North Korea2.jpg

By Guy Taylor and S.A. Miller – The Washington Times – Wednesday, May 2, 2018

North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un has released three U.S. citizens detained for years in his horrific prison camps, surrendering to another of Present Trump’s demands in advance of a planned historic summit between the two leaders whose countries have long been adversaries.

A series of concessions by Mr. Kim, from agreeing to a goal of denuclearizing the Korean Peninsula to freeing the three Americans, has not calmed fears among Mr. Trump’s critics that he will “wing it” in the talks and potentially empower the communist regime in Pyongyang.

Behind the scenes at the White House, however, the president has marshaled an agile team to hone a fast-paced negotiating strategy and back him up in the nuclear talks, which could be held as soon as this month or by the end of June.

The president’s combative style and the maneuvering by his team from the National Security Council and State Department have reaped early wins, but they are still far from getting Mr. Kim to give up his nuclear weapons.

“We’re in the beginning stages of the work, and the outcome is certainly yet unknown,” Mr. Pompeo, a former CIA chief, said when sworn in Wednesday as secretary of state. “But one thing is certain: This administration will not repeat the mistakes of the past. Our eyes are wide open. It’s time to solve this once and for all. A bad deal is not an option.”

COMMENT

President Trump has been called everything from insane to Satan himself. When all the insults that have been leveled at him fail to explain his success in North Korea or with Tax Cuts or trade deals or whatever, the last resort is now to dismiss his deeds as just plain lucky at being in the right place t the right time.

To borrow a phrase from Philosopher Stefan Molyneux: “For a blind golfer, he sure seems to get an awful lot of hole-in-ones.”


Six South American nations suspend membership of anti-U.S. bloc

Apr 20, 2018 – Reuters

BRASILIA (Reuters) – Half of the nations belonging to Unasur, a South American bloc set up a decade ago to counter U.S. sway in the region, have decided to suspend their membership, a Brazilian official told Reuters on Friday.

The governments of Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Peru and Paraguay believe the bloc has been rudderless under the current rotating presidency of Bolivia, according to a statement sent to Brazilian ministers, seen by Reuters.

South America Map.jpgBolivia’s Foreign Minister Fernando Huanacuni said the six were only pressuring for a quick turnover in presidency and stressed they were not abandoning Unasur. Bolivia will call an emergency meeting to solve disputes in the bloc, Huanacuni added in an interview with state media.

Unasur was created in 2008 when leftist populism advocated by the late Venezuelan leader Hugo Chavez was at its strongest in South America. But in recent years, the bloc has been paralysed by divisions as centre-right governments have risen to power in several countries.

“Unasur works by consensus but the differences between its members’ political and economic views are so great it can no longer operate,” said a Peruvian diplomat who asked not to be named because he was not authorized to speak publicly.

Efforts to build consensus behind strongly worded condemnations of Venezuela have run into resistance from Caracas’ left-leaning allies such as Cuba and Bolivia, as well as Caribbean nations that have benefited from Venezuela’s subsidized oil.

The remaining active Unasur members are Venezuela, Bolivia, Ecuador, Uruguay, Guyana and Suriname.

Chavez and other leaders set up Unasur to create a regional economic and political union that ultimately struggled to gain momentum.

Unasur sought to bypass the Washington-based Organisation of American States (OAS), which leftists considered a tool for promoting U.S. policy in Latin America.

Venezuela’s economic collapse and political turmoil post-Chavez has divided the region. At the OAS Summit of the Americas in Peru last week, the United States joined Brazil, Argentina, Colombia, Chile, Peru and Paraguay in condemning Venezuelan elections next month that they say will cement a dictatorship under President Nicolas Maduro.

France: Arrest of woman wearing niqab triggers five nights of rioting and millions in damages

By LAURA CAT  22 April 2018           Voice of Europe

On Sunday 15 April, a police patrol in Toulouse arrested a niqab wearing woman because she refused to show her face. In France a law adopted in 2010 states that no one public spaces may wear clothing that hides their face.

The event took place in the city’s migrant populated Mirail suburb and sparked five consecutive nights of violence.

Footage shows that the arrested woman is heavily resisting her arrest and she is shouting insults at the cops. In a matter of minutes, a group of protesters rapidly formed and forced the cops to throw tear gas grenades to disperse the crowd.

The woman was placed in custody and will be judged in mid-May for “rebellion, outrage and violence on a custodian person holding public authority”.

Unfortunately, the problems were just the beginning: In the same area, a few hours later, approximately 100 rioters started to burn cars and containers. A police station in the area was attacked as well.

 

The cops were called, and a fight broke out between police and rioters. The police had to call the Republican Security Companies, a unit who specialize in crowd and riot control, and a helicopter.

A rioter, who was filming said in the video: “We were worried they weren’t coming (the cops), so we went to the commissariat to see if they’re ok. Apparently yes.”

The riots took place from Sunday night to Thursday night. As of right now, there have been: 23 arrests, 76 burned cars, 200 police mobilised and a 5th night of difficult sleep for the civilised habitants of the district.

Fortunately, there are no human injuries so far, which is actually surprising, especially when police were speaking of “well-orchestrated ambushes” that took place, with some people arrested with acetone bottles, gas bottles and mortars, ready to be thrown at the brave men and women in uniforms.

everal of the cars were destroyed with Molotov cocktails at a local Citroen dealer near the migrant suburb. Bernard Boyer, the head of the business is “desperate” and is lamenting a 110,000 euros loss. He told news outlet Ladepeche, previously in the 2005 riots, 6 cars had been burned in his business.

A police commander familiar to the area, said on Thursday that they were expecting the violence to stop really soon. Not because the rioters were feeling tired but rather because, “drugs trafficking is the main source of income of the neighbourhood” and for a drug kingpin, this kind of event is not good for business.

‘Blood all over the road’ London crime epidemic continues as boy, 18, stabbed to death

Daily Star

A TEENAGER was stabbed to death in London last night as the capital’s crime spree continued.

Officers, paramedics and London’s Air Ambulance were called to Chestnut Avenue, Forest Gate, at about 10.50pm on Monday.

The victim – believed to be an 18-year-old man – was pronounced dead at the scene at just before 11.30pm.

London Stabbing1.jpg

No arrests have been made and cops are informing the victim’s next of kin before making a formal identification.

A Twitter user said an officer at the scene in Forest Gate told him there was blood “all over the road”.

A Metropolitan Police spokesman said: “Formal identification and a post-mortem examination will be arranged in due course.

“A police investigation has commenced, and cordons are in place at the scene.”

The brutal attack comes just hours after a 17-year-old boy was stabbed several times in Limehouse.

He was rushed to hospital, however, his condition is not believed to be life-threatening.

Robert Mueller Loses Majority Support After FBI Raids Trump’s Lawyer

by JOHN NOLTE

For More Read Here

Mueller

Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s raid on President Trump’s personal attorney Michael Cohen has backfired in the eyes of voters, according to Rasmussen Reports.

Prior to what many are describing as Mueller’s unprecedented stunt, the special counsel and former Obama official was held in high regard by a majority of the public. Back in October, a full 52 percent believed “Mueller’s investigation is an honest attempt to determine criminal wrongdoing.”

That number is now down -6 points to just 46 percent.

Moreover, the number of voters who now see Mueller’s probe is a “partisan witch hunt” has jumped a full +8 points, from 32 percent to 40 percent. Only 14 percent remain undecided.

Overall, public opinion moved against Mueller by a full 14 points. What was a 20 point (52 – 32 percent) favorable rating is now just a 6 point advantage.

The loss of Mueller’s support among a majority of voters is also worth noting.

Also worthy of note is that Trump’s approval rating has edged up since the raid. Mueller was originally appointed to investigate what has now been revealed as a partisan hoax dreamed up by Democrats and their allies in the intelligence bureaucracy and mainstream media: the idea that Trump and/or his campaign colluded with the Russians to fix the 2016 presidential election. The only wrongdoing that has so far been found  in the Russia probe has been at the hands of disgraced former FBI director James Comey’s immediate subordinates and the unprecedented unmasking committed by the Obama administration as a means to use foreign surveillance warrants to spy on Trump officials during the presidential campaign and the transition.

Various reports indicate that that Mueller raid on Trump attorney Michael Cohen (who by all accounts had been cooperating fully with document requests) was in pursuit of records and privileged attorney-client communication pertaining to Trump’s personal life and rumored extra-marital affairs from over a decade ago.

Mueller is now much more widely seen, not as a man investigating a legitimate crime, but as a zealous prosecutor investigating a man in the hopes of finding a crime that will overturn a presidential election.

YOU TUBE STAR TO RUN FOR US GOVERNOR

POPULAR YOU TUBER KARL WARWICK (ALIAS Styxhexenhammer666) HAS DECIDED TO RUN FOR GOVERNOR OF THE STATE OF VERMONT IN THE 2018 ELECTIONS

Tarl Warwick

Fed up with what the American public are being offered by way of inept candidates, Mr. Warwick has decided to stand and, looking at the state of the political class, he really could not do any worse. In a You Tube video he laid out his reasons and outlined a 6 point manifesto. His decision begs the question: Are we going to see more You Tuber stars trying their hand at the political game?

This is Karl Warwick’s statement:

 

I, Tarl Warwick, throw my hat in the ring. My platform has these planks:

  1. I will accept no pay as governor, and no pension. I have my own income.
  2. I will, if elected, refuse to enforce gun control as recently passed in hopes the legislature will help to reverse it. Vermont has no crime problem.
  3. I will, if elected, fight the opiate crisis by instructing the legislature to consider decriminalizing all drugs within the state for minor possession so that addicts can seek treatment without stigma.
  4. I will never join a political party while serving in office and will remain an independent. If elected I will not stop doing my normal gubernatorial work to campaign for re-election and will simply tell people whether or not I am running (I would attend scheduled debates however.)
  5. I will veto any tax hikes and any opaque legislation that is overly long or convoluted.
  6. I will use my online presence and presence as governor to argue in favor of the debate commission opening up to minor party candidates, and encourage the abolition of super PACs and corporate campaign donations to try and save our Republic.

 


POLL: MORE AMERICANS THAN EVER SEE MEDIA AS ENEMY OF TRUMP

Majority of voters know MSM is trying to derail Trump’s agenda

Paul Joseph Watson

More Americans than ever before think the media is trying to derail President Trump’s agenda, according to a new Rasmussen poll.

Respondents were asked, “When they write or talk about President Trump, are most reporters trying to help the president pass his agenda, block the president from passing his agenda, or are they simply interested in reporting the news in an unbiased manner?”

Trump - Media Polls
  • 52% of likely voters think that the media is trying to block Trump’s agenda, compared to just 5% who think they are trying to help his agenda. That’s up from 44% who thought the media was out to derail Trump when they were asked the same question a year ago.
  • 37% of respondents said that reporters were just trying to report the news in a neutral way. The results are in line with studies that show Trump has been on the receiving end of overwhelmingly negative media coverage.
  • Pew studylast year found that the media was twice as negative towards Trump in his first 60 days in office compared to coverage of Bill Clinton, George W. Bush or Barack Obama’s presidencies, with two thirds of stories about Trump being negative.
  • Trump received 62% negative coverage, according to Pew, compared to Barack Obama who received just 20% negative coverage.
  • A separate studyundertaken last year by Harvard Kennedy School’s Shorenstein Center on Media, Politics and Public Policy found an even more negative stance from the media towards Trump. Analyzing output from the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Washington Post and the main newscasts (not talk shows) of CBS, CNN, Fox and NBC during Trump’s first 100 days, the researchers discovered that Trump had received 80% negative coverage versus 20% positive.

Given all this, it’s something of a minor miracle that Trump has been able to recover his approval ratings to roughly match those Obama had at the same stage of his presidency.

This video is a film of the awoken, but the media do not want you to know about it:

COMMENT

I would not have made much of a comment except the corporate media (by this I mean those getting support from big business or those using tax payers funding to peddle propaganda (such as the BBC and Channel 4) are suppressing news and are constantly feeding false interpretations on those things they do report on. Anyone they do not like is usually labeled Right or Far Right with no attempt to define what they mean by Far Right. It is used as a perjorative term to make the reader feel hostile toward the targeted individual or group.

It was remarkable that Brexit was won by the Vote Leavers. If it were not for the elites trying to tell people what to vote, the Leave vote would probably have been 75%.

The hostility towards Trump is breathtaking and largely unjustified. He declared at the outset that he was no angel, but was going for it to try to save America. He had all the big media, Wall Street, Hollywood against him and just about every organization in the world against him. He had a sixth of the funding and there was even election cheating in the form  of illegal voters against him and yet he still won. Then the malice really kicked in.

The media we have today is just propaganda. It provides ‘circuses’ to distract and to tell us what to think. We are like King Theodan in Lord of the Rings. We have had the enchantment turning us into dumb creatures. But, some of us have awoken and our world looks different. The enemies are in our streets to replace us. If those still bewitched were released from their spell, they would cast the media trash and the elites into the gutter where they belong.


 

US Can’t Stop Hypersonic Weapons, Air Force General Says

By Jeanna Bryner, Live Science Managing Editor

Missiles that spit out warheads traveling up to 20 times the speed of sound and with the ability to perform elusive acrobatics may be too much for U.S. defenses to block.

Hypersonic3

That’s according to the head of the U.S. Strategic Command, Air Force Gen. John Hyten, who testified before the Senate Armed Services Committee yesterday (March 20).

When asked by Sen. Jim Inhofe, R-Okla., what kind of defenses the U.S. has against hypersonic weapons, Hyten replied: “We have a very difficult — well, our defense is our deterrent capability. We don’t have any defense that could deny the employment of such a weapon against us, so our response would be our deterrent force, which would be the triad and the nuclear capabilities that we have to respond to such a threat,” Military.com reported. [7 Technologies That Transformed Warfare]

Hyten is referring to the triad of intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBMs), submarine-launched ballistic missiles and strategic bombers, which are bomber aircraft designed to fly into enemy territory and destroy strategic targets. Ballistic missiles, both hidden underground and in secret submarines, can travel huge distances at whirring speeds.

But weapons that can travel well above the speed of sound seem to be a real threat, as both Russia and China are “aggressively pursuing” such hypersonic weapons, Hyten also said, as reported by CNBC.

Hypersonic

On March 1, during an annual address, Russian president Vladimir Putin announced a new class of weapon delivery systems designed to evade NATO’s ballistic missile defenses. Speaking on Russian television, Putin indicated the country was building a new hypersonic missile and a cruise missile with “unlimited range” that could avoid adversaries’ detection technologies.

This nuclear-powered cruise missile could travel unlimited distances, and, unlike ballistic missiles, it could cruise low to the ground where it would be obscured by other objects — meaning it would evade radar detection, Live Science previously reported.

“In theory, a cruise missile carrying a nuclear bomb could slip under American defenses and detection systems, and detonate before Americans could mobilize a response,” Live Science reported. [Could the US Stop Nuclear Weapons?]

Modern technology available today wouldn’t be able to stop such an attack, nor could it defend against missile-deploying warheads at hypersonic speeds, Philip Coyle, a nuclear weapons expert, previously told Live Science’s Rafi Letzter.

Hypersonic2

Even so, Gen. Hyten assured the Senate Committee that U.S. defenses are prepared for such a battle. “The first, most important message I want to deliver today is that the forces under my command are fully ready to deter our adversaries and respond decisively, should deterrence ever fail. We are ready for all threats,” Hyten said in his opening remarks, according to a Department of Defense statement.

Other generals have suggested supplementing the U.S. defense arsenal with low-yield nukes, or those that pack less power. In addition, space-based detection systems could theoretically detect and track hypersonic missile threats, Lt. Gen. Samuel Greaves, director of the Missile Defense Agency, said on March 6, according to Military.com.

“To maintain military superiority in this multipolar, all-domain world, we must out-think, out-maneuver, out-partner and out-innovate our adversaries,” Hyten said. “Deterrence in the 21st century requires the integration of all our capabilities, across all domains, enabling us to respond to adversary aggression anytime, anywhere.”

Just this week, President Donald Trump said the U.S. needs a “space force,” Live Science’s sister site Space.com reported.

BBC and Police Play Down Telford Child Rape Scandal, Slam ‘Unhelpful Headlines’

by LIAM DEACON 

 

Police officers investigating the Telford grooming gang scandal, possibly the largest in UK history, were sent an internal memo telling them “in most cases the sex is consensual” And, after being accused of “ignoring” the Telford grooming gang scandal, the BBC has now run a headline on the recent revelations, claiming “victim numbers sensationalised”.

In their report, the BBC also sought to question the claims of local Tory MP Lucy Allan that victims were mainly white, working-class girls and the officer they quoted suggested white people were equally guilty of child sex crimes. Rather than focus on the dozens of victims who have come forward, the UK’s national broadcaster instead led with the words of West Mercia Police Superintendent Tom Harding, who said the force “significantly disputed” the number of girls attacked.

BBC Telford2

“I don’t believe Telford is any worse than lots of places across England and Wales,” the officer said after authorities were accused of failing to act, including ignoring girls found in cars with older men, giving birth at 14, and using the morning after pill many times a week.

 

“Without an independent inquiry, how will we know?” responded Rotherham Labour MP Sarah Champion to the officer’s claims, following calls for a report into the scandal like the one focusing on Rotherham.

The initial police probe, Operation Chalice, identified at least 100 potential victims in Telford targeted between 2007 and 2009. However, fewer than ten men were jailed despite the police admitting as many as 200 groomers may be involved.

West Mercia Police sent the memo the year after Chalice was closed, to officers investigating on-going child sexual exploitation in the force area, The Mirror reports. Officers also considered some of the young victims as prostitutes.

Teenage Girl Shot Dead as 16-Year-Old Shot, Stabbed in Sadiq Khan’s London

Sadiq Khan.jpg

by VIRGINIA HALE    3 Apr 2018

A deadly wave of violent crime in London sees a teenage girl shot dead while a 16-year-old boy is in critical condition after a separate gun attack less than two miles away. A second boy has also been admitted to hospital with stab wounds

The Metropolitan Police said officers were called to Ch boyalgrove Road, Tottenham, at 9.35pm on Monday where they found a 17-year-old girl with a gunshot wound.

“Despite the best efforts of the [London Ambulance Service], she was pronounced dead at the scene at 10.43pm,” said Scotland Yard.

“Her next of kin are aware and a crime scene is in place. No arrests have been made at this stage.”

The victim was the 37th person to be killed on London’s streets in just two months, and died as a result of rival gang cross fire according to eyewitness testimony on social media, reports the Daily Mail.

In a separate incident that took place the same evening, police and London Ambulance Service were called to reports of a shooting and stabbing incident in Walhamstow, east London, at 10pm.

A 16-year-old boy is fighting for his life after receiving critical gunshot injuries, according to police.

“A second victim, a boy believed to be 17, has been taken to an east London hospital with stab injuries. We await an update on his condition.

“A crime scene is in place. No arrests have been made at this early stage and enquiries continue,” a Metropolitan Police representative said.

The past two months of violence and bloodshed in the UK capital under Mayor Sadiq Khan have seen the capital overtake New York City’s murder rate, Breitbart London reported Sunday.

Real crimes won’t be investigated by the Police who’ll rush around to your house if they don’t like your online Comments.

Alacycle

As an Australian I was shocked to hear about the child rape gangs in Rotherham had still not been dealt with yet and that victims were being labeled as trouble makers by the police. Not only that but similar gangs were operating in London, Bournemouth, Oxfordshire, Bristol, Derby, Rochdale and Telford. In fact I first heard about these events from Tommy Robinson along with Brittany Pettibone, Martin Sellner & Lauren Southern but instead of locking up the pedophiles, they are too busy locking up journalists & activists under the schedule 7 of the terrorism act who have done nothing more than rock the boat in bringing this to our attention.

Rory Nicholson

It seems that most British Police are absolutely hopeless. They don’t want to investigate these ethnic type crimes with real criminals yet they are quick to harass white bloggers and illegally detain people like Lauren Sotheren.

That’s how you debate. Ask questions, maybe get answers. Maybe…

GREAT BRITAIN will rise.

EDITORS COMMENT:

The Home Secretary (Amber Rudd) seems to be busy attacking those who speak out against these horrific rapes. Why is she not standing besides this police officer and explaining her actions. Why is she set on demonizing decent people? Why are the Left, the Government and the media content to downplay those who care by labeling them as Far Right? The affection shown to Mr. Mo Fiaz by fellow campaigners must show there is no racism here only fury against the evil men who wish to defile the innocent. In that respect, where are the feminists? Why are they not shoulder to shoulder with the protesters?

Earthquake App warned people in California of Quake before It Happened.

By Laura Geggel, Senior Writer, Live Science

Some people in Los Angeles knew about today’s earthquake before it even hit.

 

Quake alerta

 

Those who had the beta Quake Alert application on their smartphones got about a 30-second warning before the shaking hit at 12:29 p.m. PDT (19:29 UTC). The magnitude-5.3 earthquake struck about 38 miles (61 kilometers) off the coast of California today (April 5), according to the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS).

“That was the first earthquake I’ve felt since I got access to the @EarlyWarningLab beta app,” tweeted Alissa Walker, an editor at the real estate blog Curbed. “I had 34 seconds warning — enough time to drop, cover, and hold on, which I would have done if I knew shaking was going to be strong.” [Image Gallery: This Millennium’s Destructive Earthquakes]

The app works thanks to a network of seismic sensors that detect P-waves — the first energy that radiates from an earthquake, according to Early Warning Labs, a Santa Monica-based company that works with the USGS on early warning systems. The seismic sensors also detect the location and the magnitude of the earthquake.

 

Quake alertb

 

Once the longitudinal P-waves (short for pressure waves) are detected, the app sends a warning before the more powerful S-wave, or shear wave, arrives, which usually causes the most damage. Warnings are also sent to local and state public emergency response officials, infrastructure (such as to gas lines, subway systems and power plants) and to private businesses and the public, Early Warning Labs said.

Early warning systems for earthquakes have already been implemented in other countries, including Japan, Taiwan and Mexico. In fact, people in Mexico got up to a 60 second warning in the magnitude-8.1 earthquake that hit Sept. 8, 2017, Curbed Los Angeles reported.

Even if it’s just a few seconds, the warning can give people time to duck, cover and hold before the earthquake hits. It can also warn people operating vehicles or heavy equipment to slow and stop, especially if they’re about to drive onto an overpass, tunnel or bridge.

In addition, the warning can give emergency workers, including firefighters, enough time to open their station doors. During the 1994 Northridge earthquake, “the fire trucks in the immediate area couldn’t get out, and trucks were driving from station to station to cut other trucks out and not responding to calls,” Chase Rief, who is working on the app, told Curbed Los Angeles.

People can sign up for the beta version of Quake Alert here, but it’s not the only earthquake warning app out there. The app MyShake, uses the accelerometer in smartphones to pick up and interpret nearby earthquake activity so it can warn users in real time, Live Science previously reported.

Trump to deploy military to guard border until wall completed

By Stephen Dinan – The Washington Times – Tuesday, April 3, 2018

President says caravan of illegals crossing Mexico ‘is broken up’

President Trump said Tuesday that he will deploy the U.S. military to the Mexican border to plug security gaps until his border wall is completed and that his increasingly tough talk has already forced Mexican officials to break up the massive caravan of migrants who were en route to the U.S.

Trump Wall

Tough talk has already forced Mexican officials to break up the massive caravan of migrants.

 

“Until we can have a wall and proper security, we’re going to be guarding our border with the military. That’s a big step. We really haven’t done that before, or certainly not very much before,” the president said with Defense Secretary James N. Mattis at his side.

 

The White House later elaborated on Mr. Trump’s plans, saying he envisions “mobilization of the National Guard” — though what tasks they would perform remains unclear.

 

His demand for the military to assist on the border surprised Mexico, which lodged an official demand for more details, but said it would not welcome whatever he had in mind.

 

Officials said Mr. Trump, who last week floated the idea of using Pentagon money to fund construction of the border wall, explored his plans in a Tuesday afternoon meeting with Mr. Mattis, Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen and Gen. Joseph F. Dunford, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.

54 FBI Agents Working to Produce Documents Subpoenaed by House Judiciary Committee

By Susan Jones

FBI.jpgFBI Director Christopher Wray said he is doubling the number of FBI agents assigned to review and release the documents requested — and now subpoenaed — by Republicans on the House Judiciary Committee.

In a statement issued Tuesday, Wray said he is “committed” to ensuring transparency and responsiveness to legitimate congressional requests:

Up until today, we have dedicated 27 FBI staff to review the records that are potentially responsive to Chairman Goodlatte’s requests. The actual number of documents responsive to this request is likely in the thousands. Regardless, I agree that the current pace of production is too slow.

Accordingly, I am doubling the number of assigned FBI staff, for a total of 54, to cover two shifts per day from 8 a.m. to midnight to expedite completion of this project.

As CNSNews.com reported, Rep. Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.), the chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, just subpoenaed 1.2 million documents already reviewed by the Justice Department’s inspector-general as part of his investigation into how the FBI handled the Clinton email case.

Goodlatte’s committee wants to know more about former FBI Director James Comey’s decision not to prosecute Clinton, among other matters.

“Well, we want to see everything that the inspector general has seen, which is, we understand, about 1.2 million documents,” Goodlatte told Fox News’s Neil Cavuto on Monday. He said the documents are critical to his committee’s oversight of the FBI and DOJ.

The DOJ inspector general is expected to release a report on his Clinton-email investigation very shortly, but already his investigation has led to the firing of former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, for leaking to the press and apparently lying about it.

US Can’t Stop Hypersonic Weapons, Air Force General Says

By Jeanna Bryner, Live Science Managing Editor

Missiles that spit out warheads traveling up to 20 times the speed of sound and with the ability to perform elusive acrobatics may be too much for U.S. defenses to block.

Hypersonic3

That’s according to the head of the U.S. Strategic Command, Air Force Gen. John Hyten, who testified before the Senate Armed Services Committee yesterday (March 20).

When asked by Sen. Jim Inhofe, R-Okla., what kind of defenses the U.S. has against hypersonic weapons, Hyten replied: “We have a very difficult — well, our defense is our deterrent capability. We don’t have any defense that could deny the employment of such a weapon against us, so our response would be our deterrent force, which would be the triad and the nuclear capabilities that we have to respond to such a threat,” Military.com reported. [7 Technologies That Transformed Warfare]

Hyten is referring to the triad of intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBMs), submarine-launched ballistic missiles and strategic bombers, which are bomber aircraft designed to fly into enemy territory and destroy strategic targets. Ballistic missiles, both hidden underground and in secret submarines, can travel huge distances at whirring speeds.

But weapons that can travel well above the speed of sound seem to be a real threat, as both Russia and China are “aggressively pursuing” such hypersonic weapons, Hyten also said, as reported by CNBC.

Hypersonic

On March 1, during an annual address, Russian president Vladimir Putin announced a new class of weapon delivery systems designed to evade NATO’s ballistic missile defenses. Speaking on Russian television, Putin indicated the country was building a new hypersonic missile and a cruise missile with “unlimited range” that could avoid adversaries’ detection technologies.

This nuclear-powered cruise missile could travel unlimited distances, and, unlike ballistic missiles, it could cruise low to the ground where it would be obscured by other objects — meaning it would evade radar detection, Live Science previously reported.

“In theory, a cruise missile carrying a nuclear bomb could slip under American defenses and detection systems, and detonate before Americans could mobilize a response,” Live Science reported. [Could the US Stop Nuclear Weapons?]

Modern technology available today wouldn’t be able to stop such an attack, nor could it defend against missile-deploying warheads at hypersonic speeds, Philip Coyle, a nuclear weapons expert, previously told Live Science’s Rafi Letzter.

Hypersonic2

Even so, Gen. Hyten assured the Senate Committee that U.S. defenses are prepared for such a battle. “The first, most important message I want to deliver today is that the forces under my command are fully ready to deter our adversaries and respond decisively, should deterrence ever fail. We are ready for all threats,” Hyten said in his opening remarks, according to a Department of Defense statement.

Other generals have suggested supplementing the U.S. defense arsenal with low-yield nukes, or those that pack less power. In addition, space-based detection systems could theoretically detect and track hypersonic missile threats, Lt. Gen. Samuel Greaves, director of the Missile Defense Agency, said on March 6, according to Military.com.

“To maintain military superiority in this multipolar, all-domain world, we must out-think, out-maneuver, out-partner and out-innovate our adversaries,” Hyten said. “Deterrence in the 21st century requires the integration of all our capabilities, across all domains, enabling us to respond to adversary aggression anytime, anywhere.”

Just this week, President Donald Trump said the U.S. needs a “space force,” Live Science’s sister site Space.com reported.

BBC and Police Play Down Telford Child Rape Scandal, Slam ‘Unhelpful Headlines’

by LIAM DEACON 

 

Police officers investigating the Telford grooming gang scandal, possibly the largest in UK history, were sent an internal memo telling them “in most cases the sex is consensual” And, after being accused of “ignoring” the Telford grooming gang scandal, the BBC has now run a headline on the recent revelations, claiming “victim numbers sensationalised”.

In their report, the BBC also sought to question the claims of local Tory MP Lucy Allan that victims were mainly white, working-class girls and the officer they quoted suggested white people were equally guilty of child sex crimes. Rather than focus on the dozens of victims who have come forward, the UK’s national broadcaster instead led with the words of West Mercia Police Superintendent Tom Harding, who said the force “significantly disputed” the number of girls attacked.

BBC Telford2

“I don’t believe Telford is any worse than lots of places across England and Wales,” the officer said after authorities were accused of failing to act, including ignoring girls found in cars with older men, giving birth at 14, and using the morning after pill many times a week.

 

“Without an independent inquiry, how will we know?” responded Rotherham Labour MP Sarah Champion to the officer’s claims, following calls for a report into the scandal like the one focusing on Rotherham.

The initial police probe, Operation Chalice, identified at least 100 potential victims in Telford targeted between 2007 and 2009. However, fewer than ten men were jailed despite the police admitting as many as 200 groomers may be involved.

West Mercia Police sent the memo the year after Chalice was closed, to officers investigating on-going child sexual exploitation in the force area, The Mirror reports. Officers also considered some of the young victims as prostitutes.

At least 64 people, some children, killed in Russian mall fire

By Maria Kiselyova and Christian Lowe   Reuters 26 March 2018

MOSCOW (Reuters) – At least 64 people were killed by a fire which engulfed a busy shopping mall in the Siberian city of Kemerovo, Russian investigators said on Monday, and some of the dead were children.

The fire, one of the deadliest in Russia since the break-up of the Soviet Union, swept through the upper floors of the “Winter Cherry” shopping centre on Sunday afternoon where a cinema complex and children’s play area were located.

Emergency services said they had extinguished the blaze, but later said it had reignited, and that rescuers were struggling to reach the building’s upper floors because the roof had collapsed. TV footage on Monday showed thick black smoke rising from the yellow building.

Russian Mall

It was unclear if any people were still unaccounted for, but 11 people were being treated in hospital, including an 11-year-old boy who was in a serious condition.

Earlier on Monday, people had posted appeals on social media seeking news of their relatives or friends, and authorities set up a centre in a school near the mall to deal with inquiries.

Anna Kuznetsova, Russia’s children’s rights commissioner, said the fire had been caused by incompetence and warned there were many similar shopping centres.

“Other regions, the bosses of other malls must right now, without waiting for (routine) checks, ask themselves: Have we done everything we can to ensure something like this doesn’t happen here,” Kuznetsova said in a statement.

The shopping mall, a former cake factory, had few windows or doors.

CRIMINAL INVESTIGATION

Witnesses were quoted by Russian media as saying that the fire alarm had failed to go off, and that many people had found themselves trapped because exit doors were locked.

Video footage from inside the mall after the fire broke out showed a group of people in a smoke-filled staircase trying to smash a fire exit door, which was jammed.

Russia’s Channel One TV station reported that some people had jumped from upper windows to escape the flames.

State investigators, who have opened a criminal investigation into the blaze, said four people had been detained over the fire, including the owners and lessees of outlets inside the mall. Russia’s Investigative Committee, which handles major crimes, said it was trying to bring in the mall’s owner for questioning.

The Interfax news agency cited an unnamed local official source as saying the main theory being looked at was that the fire had been caused by an electrical short circuit.

However, it quoted Vladimir Chernov, the region’s deputy governor, as saying on Sunday that the blaze had started when a child had set fire to the foam on a trampoline in a play area using a lighter.

State TV said the mall had opened in 2013.

President Vladimir Putin, elected to a new term last weekend, spoke by telephone with the governor of the Kemerovo region and with the head of the Emergency Situations Ministry whom he dispatched to the scene.

Russia’s health minister, Veronika Skvortsova, flew to Kemerovo, a coal-producing region about 3,600 km (2,200 miles) east of Moscow, and visited the injured in hospital.

Putin “expressed his deep condolences to the relatives and loved ones of those who died,” the Kremlin said in a statement.

Mourners left flowers near the scene of the blaze.

Other big fires in Russia have often turned out to be the result of serious violations of fire safety regulations.

In 2009, 156 people were killed in the city of Perm when an indoor pyrotechnics display at a nightclub went wrong. The owner of that nightclub was convicted of negligence and sentenced to almost a decade in prison.

 


 

 


4 Dead as Hero French Police Officer, Arnaud Beltrame, Gives His Life in Trebes Hostage Incident

24/03/2018

‘He fell as a hero, giving up his life to halt the murderous outfit of a jihadist terrorist.’

TrebesHero

A heroic French officer who swapped himself for a hostage during an attack on a supermarket in Carcassonne has died of his injuries, a top security official said.

Arnaud Beltrame, who once served in Iraq, had been raced to hospital fighting for his life after the siege in which he took the place of a female hostage at the Super U store in the town of Trebes, near the Pyrenees mountains that divide France and Spain.

He had managed to surreptitiously leave his mobile phone on so that police outside could hear what was going on inside the supermarket. Officials said once they heard shots inside the shop they decided to storm it, killing the gunman.

“He fell as a hero, giving up his life to halt the murderous outfit of a jihadist terrorist,” President Emmanuel Macron said in a statement shortly before dawn on Saturday.

Friday’s attacker was identified by authorities as Redouane Lakdim, a 25-year-old Moroccan-born French national from the city of Carcassonne, not far from Trebes, a tranquil town of about 5,000 people where he struck on Friday afternoon, reports Reuters.

Lakdim was known to authorities for drug-dealing and other petty crimes, but had also been under surveillance by security services in 2016-2017 for links to the radical Salafist movement, Paris prosecutor Francois Molins said on Friday.

The attacker, whose rampage began when he shot at a group of police joggers and also shot the occupants of a car he stole, killed three people and injured 16 others on Friday, according to a government readout.

Beltrame’s death takes the number killed to four

Trebes

 

The Islamic State group has claimed responsibility for the attack. Macron has said security services are checking that claim.

More than 240 people have been killed in France in attacks since 2015 by assailants who either pledged allegiance to Islamic State or were inspired by the group.

France is part of a group of countries whose warplanes have been bombing Islamic State strongholds in Iraq and Syria, where the group has lost substantial ground in recent months.

One multiple attack by Islamist gunmen and suicide bombers killed 130 people in Paris while another killed close to 90 when a man ran a truck into partying crowds in the Riviera seaside city of Nice.

Beltrame, in his mid-40s, was a qualified parachutist who served for a spell in Iraq in 2005 and also worked as part of the elite Republican Guard that protects the French president’s Elysee Place offices and residence in Paris, Macron said.

The Super U store was the first deadly attack since October 2017, when a man stabbed two young women to death in the port city of Marseille before soldiers killed him.

Several attacks over the past year or more have targeted police and soldiers deployed in big numbers to protect civilians and patrol sensitive spots such as airports and train stations.

Macron said of Beltrame: “In offering himself as a hostage to the terrorist holed up in the Trebes supermarket, lieutenant colonel Beltrame saved the life of a civilian hostage, showing exceptional self-sacrifice and courage.”

The news of Beltrame’s death was first announced France’s interior minister, who said in a Twitter post: “Dead for his country. France will never forget his heroism, bravery and sacrifice.”

Donald Trump Signs Bloated $1.3 Trillion Omnibus Bill, Cites Military Funding

 

Trump & Ryan

The president described the 2,232-page bill as “ridiculous” but said he felt the need to sign it because of his duty to protect the country.

“As a matter of national security, I’ve signed this omnibus budget bill,” Trump said. “There are a lot of things I’m unhappy about in this bill. I say to Congress: I will never sign another bill like this again.”

Trump complained that the bill was too long with too little time to read.

“You tell me, who can read that quickly,” Trump said to reporters.

Omnbus Bill

Trump spoke at length about the bill, specifically pointing out the increases in military spending.

“So while we’re very disappointed in the $1.3 trillion, nobody more disappointed than me because the number is so large,” Trump said. “We had no choice but to fund our military.”

He brought Gen. Jim Mattis to the podium to praise the bill’s big investment in the U.S. armed forces.

“Today we received the largest military budget in history, reversing many years of decline and unpredictable funding,” Mattis said. “Together, we’re going to make our military stronger than ever.” Mattis urged the military to “spend every dollar wisely” and serve as good stewards of the taxpayer’s money.

 

The president stunned Washington on Friday morning, after he raised problems with the bill, threatening to veto the legislation after it did not offer protections for DACA recipients and funding for his long-promised wall. He told reporters that he “looked very seriously” at vetoing the bill, but ultimately said he signed it to fund the military.

Britain First leader, Paul Golding, beaten up in Elmley Prison

The failure to protect at-risk inmates such as Paul Golding left the man with a broken nose. Previous political prisoners have been murdered.

The leader of Britain First had his nose broken in prison by an Iraqi asylum seeker, it was claimed last night.

Paul Golding, 36, is serving 18 weeks in HMP Elmley on the Isle of Sheppey in Kent after being convicted of religiously aggravated harassment.

It emerged last week that the far-right activist was attacked by two inmates within hours of him arriving at the jail.

One of the attackers was said to be Nasir Muhsen.

Muhsen

Originally from Iraq, Muhsen was jailed for being part of a mob who went looting during the 2011 riots.

He is now serving another sentence for a brutal attack on a prison officer that left ended the victim’s career.

A source told The Sun: “It’s hardly rocket science to think Golding and the likes of Muhsen might not get on.

“Officials are just glad it wasn’t worse.”

Police are understood to be investigating the alleged attack.

When asked about the incident last week, a Prison Service spokesperson said: “We do not comment on individual prisoners.”

Golding and Britain First deputy leader Jayda Fransen, 32, were found guilty on March 5 of religiously aggravated harassment at Folkestone Magistrates Court.

A source told The Sun: “It’s hardly rocket science to think Golding and the likes of Muhsen might not get on.

“Officials are just glad it wasn’t worse.”

Police are understood to be investigating the alleged attack.

When asked about the incident last week, a Prison Service spokesperson said: “We do not comment on individual prisoners.”

Golding and Britain First deputy leader Jayda Fransen, 32, were found guilty on March 5 of religiously aggravated harassment at Folkestone Magistrates Court.

They were “threatening and abusive” towards family members – including children and a pregnant mother – of two defendants being tried for raping a 16-year old teenage white girl.

District Judge Justin Barron said he had no doubt it was the defendants’ intention to use the trial – which involved Muslim immigrants in a “particularly brutal and emotive rape” – for their own political ends.

COMMENT: What does Britain First gain politically? I am sure they are not doing it for ego and nor are they doing it for money. How about the truth Judge? They do what they do it because they do not like little girls being raped. Is that beyond your fettered mind to understand?

He added: “This was a campaign to draw attention to the race, religion and immigrant background of the defendants.”

He sentenced Fransen, who won notoriety last year after President Trump re-tweeted anti-Muslim videos on her Twitter page, to 36 weeks in prison.

Fransen founded Britain First with Golding as a self-proclaimed “patriotic political party” seven years ago.

The party says it “opposes Islamic extremism and mass immigration because they are a danger to the British people”.

The pair have gained nearly half a million followers on Facebook and an estimated 1,000 active supporters but have failed to make a dent in the mainstream politics.

COMMENT: If paedophiles can be housed separately for their own protection then why can’t political prisoners such as Paul Golding also be segregated. A letter to local MP, Rt Hon Penny Mordaunt has been submitted protesting the lack of protection in these cases. The question is: Should people such as Paul Golding be treated as a political prisoner?

Opposition Party Throws Tear Gas In Kosovo Parliament

Opposition party leaders released tear gas throughout Kosovo’s parliament Wednesday 21st March to try to block a vote.

Members of The Self-Determination Movement party set off three tear gas canisters in the parliament hall before politicians were able to start voting. The vote is regarding a border demarcation agreement with Montenegro, The Independent (UK) reported. Kosovo stands to lose 20,000 acres of its territory to Montenegro because of the agreement.

More than 100 members rushed out as the tear gas poured through parliament.

U.S. ambassador to Kosovo, Greg Delawie, sent out tweets criticizing the Movement party’s actions and urged the politicians to “finish the vote today.” Delawie also asked politicians to “vote yes” on the Border Demarcation Agreement, claiming it will benefit Europe.

AUstin RollinsRollins2 Jaelin Willey

The teen gunman who died after injuring two classmates in a shooting at a Maryland high school on Tuesday has been identified as 17-year-old Austin Wyatt Rollins.

Rollins entered Great Mills High School just before classes started Tuesday morning, pulled out a handgun and shot a 16-year-old girl.

St Mary’s County Sheriff Tim Cameron said Rollins and the female victim had a ‘prior relationship’ but he couldn’t comment on the ‘extent’ of that relationship or whether it played into the motive.

A 14-year-old boy was also hit with a bullet, before the school resource officer intervened and brought the bloodbath to an end in just one minute.

The sheriff praised Gaskill, a six-year veteran in his first year at the high school, for containing the situation in less than a minute.

‘He had to cover significant ground,’ Cameron said. ‘The premise is simple: You go to the sound of gunfire.’

The two students who were injured were rushed to the hospital in critical condition, but their conditions have since improved.

The female student is still in the ICU, battling life-threatening critical injuries, but doctors have been able to stabilize her.

The male student’s condition has been upgraded to good.

While authorities have not identified the victims, an online fundraising campaign revealed the identity of the female victim as Jaelynn Willey.

The YouCaring fund, started by a family friend to raise money for Willey’s medical bills, has already raised more than $33,000 as of 9.30pm ET.

As Rollins identity came to light, it was revealed that one of his relatives was worried about his safety after learning about the attack.

Gunman’s body lies on the street outside the White House after he shot and killed himself

Suicide at WHFeb 2018

Apparently, this incident occurred on 3rd March 2018. Some will feel happy and some sad over this. I am of the latter opinion.

What drives people, and it’s usually men, to destroy themselves in this way. There is a lead up to them doing this. Did he really think he was going to get anywhere with whatever plot he may have had inside his head or was this just a suicide in a public place; a way of being acknowledged in some way at the point of death? Again you can interpret as a display of fatalistic ego, but perhaps the nature of it is a kind of self-despoilment through an act of humiliation or punishment of the self.

 


Donald Trump announces newest US warship to be named after Canberra

By  Andrew Brown          February 24 2018

The newest American navy vessel will have a touch of Australia on board, if only in name.

During a joint press conference in Washington DC with Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull, US President Donald Trump announced the US Navy’s new warship will be named the USS Canberra.

USS Canberra

The USS Canberra will be an Independence-variant Littoral Combat Ship, and will replace its former namesake, which was decommissioned in the 1970s.

It is only the US navy vessel to be named for a city outside of the US.

Supermarket Terror in Trebes

Individual claims allegiance to the Islamic State terror group, reports say.

Two people have been killed and about a dozen injured during a hostage situation at a supermarket in Trèbes, south-western France, according to French police.

The hostage taker, who was said to be armed with a gun, claimed allegiance to the Islamic State terror group, AFP reported state prosecutors as saying.

UK Schools Evacuated After Mass Hoax Bomb Threat

Schools were demanded to ‘hand over cash’.  By Jasmin Gray

19/03/2018 

For Huff Post article see here

More than 400 schools and colleges around England have received hoax bomb threats, leaving hundreds of schoolchildren forced to evacuate school buildings across the country.

Northumbria Police confirmed that a large number of schools in the region had received an email threatening to detonate a bomb on school grounds if they refused to “hand over cash”.

Fake bomb threats were also received by 19 schools across Yorkshire and Lincolnshire. Officers believe that the emails – which they say pose “no viable threat” – originated from the US.

Northumbria Police said in a statement: “We have received reports from a large number of schools in our region that they have received threatening emails.

“Schools have been visited by police to reassure them that the incident is being treated as a hoax and address any concerns.

“We take all incidents of this nature extremely seriously and an investigation into the emails in question are underway.”

 


British Scientist Stephen Hawking Dead at Age 76

Stephen Hawkings

Stephen Hawking, who sought to explain some of the most complicated questions of life while himself working under the shadow of a likely premature death, has died at 76.

The UK’s Press Association reported his death, citing a spokesman for the family.

Hawking’s formidable mind probed the very limits of human understanding both in the vastness of space and in the bizarre sub-molecular world of quantum theory, which he said could predict what happens at the beginning and end of time.

His work ranged from the origins of the universe itself, through the tantalising prospect of time travel to the mysteries of space’s all-consuming black holes.

But the power of his intellect contrasted cruelly with the weakness of his body, ravaged by the wasting motor neurone disease he contracted at the age of 21.

Hawking was confined for most of his life to a wheelchair.

As his condition worsened, he had to resort to speaking through a voice synthesiser and communicating by moving his eyebrows.

The disease spurred him to work harder but also contributed to the collapse of his two marriages, he wrote in a 2013 memoir “My Brief History.”

In the book he related how he was first diagnosed: “I felt it was very unfair – why should this happen to me,” he wrote.

“At the time, I thought my life was over and that I would never realise the potential I felt I had. But now, 50 years later, I can be quietly satisfied with my life.” Hawking shot to international fame after the 1988 publication of “?A Brief History of Time”, one of the most complex books ever to achieve mass appeal, which stayed on the Sunday Times best-sellers list for no fewer than 237 weeks.

He said he wrote the book to convey his own excitement over recent discoveries about the universe.

?”My original aim was to write a book that would sell on airport bookstalls,” he told reporters at the time. “?In order to make sure it was understandable I tried the book out on my nurses. I think they understood most of it.”Reuters

The Congress members hit BJP MLA Jagdish Panchal with the rod of a microphone and also punched him, following which the members of the ruling party assaulted Amrish Der of the opposition party.

The ruckus began when Speaker Rajendra Trivedi stopped Vikram Madam of the Congress from expressing his views during a discussion on an issue after the Question Hour.

Madam, however, insisted that he would speak. At that time, Der asked the speaker to allow Madam to speak. The Speaker objected to his tone, following which Madam and Der rushed to the Well of the House in protest. Trivedi then suspended both the Congress MLAs for the day and they were taken out of the Assembly by the marshals. This enraged Congress MLA Pratap Dudhat, who then attacked the BJP’s Jagdish Panchal with a rod attached to a microphone. Dudhat was angry with Panchal for asking Congress MLAs to remain silent when the Speaker was making his point.

After the attack on Panchal, the speaker suspended Dudhat for the rest of the Budget Session. He then adjourned the House for 10 minutes.

In the meantime, Der entered the House from the back door and attacked Panchal. The other BJP members present in the House came to Panchal’s rescue and attacked Der. The marshals rushed in and brought the situation under control. PTI

‘You’re an idiot’: Hungary’s foreign minister blasts Luxembourg counterpart

By Chris Harris  21/02/2018

Hungary’s foreign minister Peter Szijjarto has hit back at Jean Asselborn’s claims that Viktor Orban was a “dictator”.

Hungary vs Luxembourg

Hungary’s foreign minister has branded his Luxembourg counterpart “an idiot” in a row over immigration.

Peter Szijjarto, in an article published on the Hungarian government website, accused Jean Asselborn of wanting to flood Europe with migrants.

It comes after Luxembourg’s Asselborn criticised Viktor Orban’s government in Hungary, calling him a dictator.

He was giving an interview to German newspaper Der Tagesspiegel after Hungary passed laws clamping down on organisations that helped asylum seekers.

Asselborn said it represented an “attitude [that] suits a dictator who believes that the drive to maintain power is more important than any political moral decency”.

Szijjarto, responding to the criticism of Orban, said: “Jean Asselborn has crossed all possible boundaries with his latest statement.

“Jean Asselborn is an idiot, but the Hungarians are not; the people of Hungary have no need for of the Luxembourgian foreign minister’s crazy ideas to know what’s good for them.

“The Orban government is protecting Hungary’s security, but the Luxembourgian foreign minister would like to demolish the border security fence — together with George Soros and his comrades in principle in Hungary — and flood Hungary with migrants.”

Mr. Orban has been embroiled in an escalating “Stop Soros” feud with the 87-year-old philanthropist, waging a billboard and media campaign asserting that he would “settle millions from Africa and the Middle East”. George Soros has rejected the campaign against him as “distortions and lies” meant to create a false external enemy.

For full article

Comment:  Some would call George Soros a philanthropist, but many more regard him as an international criminal who sponsors organizations that seek to undermine social, economic and political stability. He is seen as a globalist and the enemy of the concept of nation states.

rRomania - EU meeting

Romania’s new prime minister – the country’s third in seven months – has been meeting EU leaders in Brussels amid tensions over judicial reforms.

Viorica Dancila’s arrival coming after the EU warned Bucharest to reconsider its moves, which critics say weaken judicial independence, and undermine efforts to combat corruption.

She didn’t mention corruption in a media statement issued after meeting officials.

 

Reassurances given

 

Antonio Tajani, European Parliament President, commented: “I asked the Romanian government to continue with conviction the process of reforms supposed to enhance the rule of law, the fight against corruption, transparency and competitiveness. I have received from the prime minister reassuring answers and an availability to cooperate with the European Parliament.”

UK expected to feel ‘colder than Arctic Circle’ with snow warnings in place

By PA  25 Feb 2018

Met- Ashford, Kent

Train passing through Ashford, Kent (England)

Some parts of the UK are set to feel colder than places in the Arctic Circle as the freezing temperatures continue into the week. Widespread snow is forecast, and the Met Office has issued yellow weather warnings for Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday.

By the middle of the week, the majority of Britain is being warned of the potential for delays on the roads, trains and in the air.

Met Office Report

The alert also warns there may be some power cuts and loss of mobile phone signal.

The Met Office said that by the end of Wednesday, more than 20cm of snow may have accumulated in some parts of eastern England, Scotland and Northern Ireland.

Met Office meteorologist Charlie Powell said: “The UK is on track for some really cold weather this week. It’s not going to be record-breaking, but it’ll be pretty exceptional – winds are going to make it feel minus 10C (14F) to minus 15C (5F) during the day.

“We will see the first signs of that tonight in the shape of snow showers working all the way down the east coast.

“That continues into Monday, with snow showers moving across the country during the day before reaching Wales.

“Winds are then going to strengthen and we could see some easterly gales through the eastern Channel and east Anglia by the middle of the week.

“That’s going to make it feel really cold, daytime temperatures on Wednesday and Thursday will be struggling to get above freezing for most of the country.”

He added: “By Thursday evening, there are growing signs there could be some significant snowfall across southern England.

“Unusually for Britain, the snow is going to be quite dry, so it will blow around and gather in drifts and we could see some blizzard conditions.

“We don’t want to scare people, but people should make sure they are prepared for some seriously cold weather.”

Lows of -5C (23F) recorded over the weekend marked the lowest temperature in the week leading up to March 1, the first day of spring, since 1986.

The wind chill, which could see parts of the UK feeling as cold as -15C (5F), rivals the temperatures forecast for parts of northern Norway and Iceland.

President Trump said Thursday that disturbing behavior must be reported early to prevent tragedies

APTOPIX_Trump_44846.jpg-fb1cf_c0-182-3745-2365_s885x516

President Trump said Thursday that disturbing behavior must be reported early to prevent tragedies like the shooting at a Florida high school.

“So many signs that the Florida shooter was mentally disturbed, even expelled from school for bad and erratic behavior. Neighbors and classmates knew he was a big problem. Must always report such instances to authorities, again and again!” Mr. Trumptweeted.

The suspect, 19-year-old Nikolas Cruz, opened fire with a semi-automatic weapon at his former high school Wednesday afternoon, while wearing a gas mask and throwing smoke grenades. Seventeen people have been confirmed dead while another 15 remain in the hospital. He was charged with 17 counts of murder.

The shooting occurred Wednesday afternoon at his former school where he was expelled, Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida.

Florida school shooting suspect was ex-student who was flagged as threat

He preened with guns and knives on social media, bragged about shooting rats with his BB gun and got kicked out of school — in part because he had brought bullets in his backpack, according to one classmate. He was later expelled for still-undisclosed disciplinary reasons.

The portrait of Nikolas Cruz, suspected of fatally shooting 17 people at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland and wounding 15 others at his former school, is a troubled teen with few friends and an obsessive interest in weapons. Administrators considered him enough of a potential threat that one teacher said a warning was emailed last year against allowing him on the campus with a backpack.  Read More
